Mitchelstown boxer Vladimir Belujsky will make the step up to 8 rounds of boxing in Tijuana, Mexico next week (November 3) for his sixth professional bout. 

Belujsky said the fight is a challenge to prepare him for an Irish title fight on December 7 in Mayo, which will be televised live on TG4.

The Slovak Rebel has been sparring with Tommy Hyde, one of the best young talents out there, in the build-up to his bout in Mexico. 

“I’m looking for my 6th career knockout win out of six. Huge thank you to my sponsors for allowing me to chase my dreams and also everybody who’s been supporting me, I appreciate it so much," Belujsky told The Avondhu this week.
